Adele Flips the Bird (and promotes our logo!)
Written by Jimmy
Congrats to Adele and Ed. As some of you may know, we have a long term co-branding deal with Adele. Whereever possible, we ask her to talk about Abubilla Music or try at least to mention our logo – you know the ‘little birdie’. Well she did us proud last night:
Reminds us of our favourite little Birdie video:
We did a little research to look at other wonderful Brit moments. Here are three:
Twenty Years Ago: KLF does a thrash metal version of their song 3AM Eternal causing the musical director to walk out in disgust. Prompts two immediate video ideas:
- Remind ourselves of 3 AM Eternal, with the ‘complete version.’
- Linkin’ Park’s Cover of Adele’s Rolling in the Deep: Not really a thrash metal version, but you get the idea.
15 years ago: Spice Girls win ‘Brit Best Moment of All Time’ with Who Do You think you are. Later, Geri sells British flag dress for over £40K in charity auction to have Guinness record for Highest Price Paid for Pop clothing. You can’t make this stuff up. Here’s the performance:
Last year, Adele blew everyone away with her performance of Something Like You. Not sure if you’ve seen it as it only has 91M hits on you tube:
Congrats Adele and thanks for the cuddle.
